new york daily news written by president obama in which he says every year on this had day we are all new yorkers. and he goes on to say, on this day and every day, it is incumbent on each of us to uphold those eye deals that our enemies were and are so eager to destroy. we want to go live now to ground zero and cbs news correspondent chris wragge who has more on what's going on down today. good morning, chris. >> reporter: good morning to you. we are here adjacent to ground zero. you can see ground zero in the back ground. this is the spot where the victims' names will be read later this morning. the forecast here in lower manhattan symbolic of the mood here in lower manhattan on this somber anniversary of a day no one will forget. eight years after that awful day, people across the country will pause today to remember those lost on september 11th 2001. from massachusetts to ohio to
utah thousands of flags are being planted in remember bransz. this is first year nim will also be observed as a national day of service. >> random acts of service is probably the biggest thing we can do to show whoever wanted to destroy us that they can't. >> reporter: at the pentagon the presidented will meet with the family members of the 184 who died there. near shanksville, pennsylvania, former secretary of state colin powell will remember the heros of flight 93. at ground zero vice president biden will join family members and firefighters who will read the nameses of the more than 2600 people lost there. two moments of silence will mark the exact time the planes hit the twin towers and then two more to mark the time each building collapsed. at dusk a a tribute in light will shine two beams into the night sky. eight years later, are we any safer from another attack? a new cbs news poll shows a quarter of americans think the obama administration's policies
have made us safer from terrorism, but nearly as many think the country is less safe. and here in lower manhattan, although this is a very active construction site which we showed you you yesterday, we were advised family members will be escorted to what will be the plaza level of the 9/11 memorial. there is a spot set fun families to take a few moments to reflect. harry? >> chris wragge downtown with us this morning, thanks. a new poll today shows president obama got a positive bump from his health care speech two nights ago. according to a cbs news poll 52% now approve of how the president is handling health care. last week that number was about 40%. joining us now from washington is cbs news political analyst john dickerson. good good morning. >> good morning. >> it's very interesting. you get poll numbers and it's nice to get a a positive bump but the real story is how did this play on capitol hill. and what were the voiceses sounding like yesterday around
the capitol? >> the voices were sounding very much like they sounded before he gave the speech and in fact some of the details the president laid out only added more questions for the long list of questions members of congress have. he still has a tough road ahead of him. his numbers are approved on the approval que rating, you but even out in the public, there are a hot of poll only 20% said there was something in the health reform no them, which mean as lot of people don't think it will affect them and that will bleed back into what the members of congress are hearing from their constituents. >> the beg hot button issue continues to be this public option. we ran a focus group the night of the speech and people had dials in their hands and when it went negative, they turned it to the right. and when the word public option came up, it went off the charts. is there any chance that this lives in the continuing negotiations about health care? >> it may live in the house. in fact the president is
getting a lot of flack from liberal democrats who say there must be a public option and so the house version of this bill may include a public option. of course in the senate moderate democrats are saying no public option at all. they're more concerned with cost. so the president has many different constituencies he has to mole guy here. so what will end up has goning, the real question will come which bill wins out. >> john dickerson live in washington. we do appreciate it. thanks so much. now here's maggie. there's more fallout surrounding south carolina representative gentlemen wilson who shouted "you lie" during the president's tuesday night address. he's apologizing with you many on the right are rallying around him. here's cbs news koerpt nancy cordes with the latest. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: made g. morning. that's right this two word outburst was threatening to overshadow the president obama's entire address. wilson said he's sorry, but now he says he thinks there's a double standard going on because he's not the first person to
criticize a president. >> you lie! >> reporter: congressman joe wilson's outbhurs during the president's health care speech wednesday night was followed by a quick apology. >> my statements were inappropriate. >> reporter: but in a new interview, wilg son says he's been treated unfair tearily, that democrats didn't get criticized as heavily when they made disparaging remarks about president wush. >> i believe they do have a double standard. >> reporter: both sides have capitalized on controversy. wilson's democratic opponent, rob miller has raised hundreds of thousands of dollar, while t-shirts and bumper stickers supporting wilson have sprung up, too, this his home district in south carolina, the reaction was just usa polarized. >> i thought it was being that he stood up for what he believed in. why i thought it was re rude and very disrespectful.
>> reporter: democrats as well as republicans would love to just move on from this. democrats, because they feel it's drawing attention away from the president's health care message, and republicans because they want to be defined by their message of opposition and not by bad behavior. maggie? >> nancy cordes thanks. congressman wilson's son, alan, who is running for attorney general of south carolina, joins us from mount pleasant. good morning to you, sir. >> good morning. thank you for having me on. >> you're very welcome. last night your father said quote, do i apologize for speaking out, but what the president said was not accurate. is so your father sorry for what he said or just where he said it. >> >> first of all maggie let me say i'm very proud of my father. he apologized and i'm glad that he did. but what he said was absolutely true. and i'm proud of him for having the courage to tell the truth. >> so then rather than apologize, did he consider embracing this and saying you know what, i'm tired of the political correctness and the phoniness, people should just be
able to say what they really feel? >> well, maggie first i want to say this, we should look at the facts. the comments that triggered my father's remark was when the president said that tax funds would not go to insuring illegal aliens. and if you look at the facts, several weeks ago, democrats in congress twice voted down amendments that would require citizenship verification. the congressional research service confirmed that illegal imgrabtss under this bill could easily be insured under president obama's health care bill. and that's what frustrated dad. >> they would be allowed to apply, but they would be barred from the subsidies. >> maggie, i'm running for state attorney general and i've been in law enforcement for years. and as a prosecutor in law enforcement, and by the way, law enforcement means you have to be able to enforce the law. as a prosecutor in law enforcement, if there's no mechanism to enforce the law, then the law is hole le and empty and it's no good. and that's what frustrated my dad. there is absolutely no way to
enforce the law if there's no requirement to verify your citizenship. >> so should he have a apologized if you're suppo others are, as well, why the apology? >> like i said, i refer back to dad's original remarks when he apologized it to the president, which i'm glad that he did and i'm glad the president accepted it. he apologized for the timing of the remarks. but the substance of the remarks are still substantively true. >> your father's democratic rival, rob miller, has seen a huge influx of campaign donations since your father's remark. is your father worried that it could cost him his seat, and if so, would it have been worth it? >> my dad's been in public service for 25 years and everyone some his district knows that he's passion that the about national defense and limited government, lower taxes. and he's passionate about health care reform and he's passionate about being truthful with the american people. and so i think that's going to resonate very well with the
people of the second congressional district as well as the people of south carolina. and like i said maggie, the debate should not be about his remarks in congress. the apology's been made and accepted. the debate should be in the american people and the people listening to my voice right now should ask the question why did the democrats vote down the amendment to enforce that clause the amendment that would require citizenship verification. why if it's a harmless amendment, why vote it down? and that's where the focus should be about sglp and now if you can finally just give me a yes or no have we seen the final apology on this from your father? he's not going to apologize on the house floor? >> my dad you issued an apology. he called the white house. he apologized to ram emanual. and the president i understand has accepted that apology. he apologized one time. he's reiterated that poll guy gi there that first time. and i think everyone understands that he was basically voicing the frustration of the american people. i want people to they that my dad is a very's served man who had raised four eeg scouts and
four sons ins military and he's very pay the friday on the tick and this is an anner race. he's very passionate about health care reform but's also very passion that the about truthfully bringing health care reform to the american people in an honest and open way. >> all right, alan wilson, we have to leave will. thanks a lot. >> thank you, maggie. have a great day. now let's check in with russ mitchell at the news desk. good morning. in space this morning, the shuttle "discovery" astronauts are hoping for a break in the weather on earth. "discovery" was due to return home yesterday from its police to the space station, but storms near the kennedy space center forced a delay. it appears this morning that 18-year-old caster semenya may be something more or less than a woman. cbs news koernts mark phillips has more on that. >> reporter: in south africa caster semenya has been celebrated as a world leader. her no contest victory at the world championships last month was the result of simply running faster they say not the result
of gender advantage. but while caster has joined the pan these on of south african icons, unconfirmed reports claim that a gender test has been inconclusive, that she may have a rare inter-gender condition including some internal male organs. that might explain semenya's deep voice and masculine build. the international athletics federation says it's still studying the results of the test and won't make an announcement until late november. mark phillips, cbs news london. it is now 7:13 on this friday morning. lonnie quinn is here for dave price with our first look at th###e weather. we are not getting a good day here at new york city. a tough one out there and it's all because of this low pressure system that's centered now and it's affecting most of the northeast. what's going to happen there will be vonk winds out there, about 45 miles an hour from atlantic city to new york city. that will be the worth of it. lots of heavy rain at times and it will have a little bit of a
break and then it comes back in at times. seas will also be rough and that's one area. the other area where we could potentially severe weather from the northern plains some to the central plains we're talking about warm air mixing with cool air, that typical scenario where you will be triggering at times ñ for that storm in new york city it's a slow mover. looks like the good weather will arrive by sunday.

this fall. that's one h1n1 shot. joining us is dr. travis stork host of the doctors oig. >> thanks for having me. >> i just washed them, you're okay p. >> so i'm in the car and all of a sudden i hear this headline, only one h1n1 shot this fall instead of two. for the last couple of months it's going to be two. why only one shot some. >> because the research has been very promising. it's shown that after one shot, the immediate response is robust. and that's in had adults. it's effective within eight to ten days, which is a good thing. and i think there was a lot of people would have to get a booster. they don't need to. again, it's not the regular seasonal flu shot, just the h1n1. >> we have to clarify because we've been going on that again, too, because the regular flu shot is available now that you would get normally, correct?
>> that's correct. >> and so you could go ahead and get your flu shot if you're a flu shot person. we're still waiting for the h1n1 vaccine. when is that available? >> so h1n1 mid october most likely. and the seasonal flu vaccine, it'straditionally want to get the traditional, go get it now. this is what's important. do regular seasonal flu in many cases has worst symptoms than the swine flu. they get better. and this year it could be a particularly bad regular flu season on top of the swine flu. >> so the most important thing to keep in mind, i don't usually get a flu shot anyway but should i get a flu shot or who are the people absolutely should get the h 1 m 1 vaccine? is. >> well, pregnant women at the top of the list because pregnant women are at most risk for complications.
young children for certain. someone like me i'm a health care worker i work in the e.r. i can spread it so i should get the shot to prevent being a vector. and if you have underlying health problem, underlying lung problem, it's really important to get the vaccine because we're trying to prevent complications. >> that's what it's all about and especially pregnant women because their immune sooms are compromised. we'll talk more with in you about a laugh hour. stick around. coming up the frantic search if a missing yale university student who vanished just days before her wedding when we come back. . >> announcer: this portion of "the early show" sponsored by walmart. save money, live better, walmart.

connecticut with the latest. good morning, kelly. >> reporter: good morning. a spokesperson with yale university says there is no evidence of foul play at this time. annie lee disappeared from the building behind me, her family, friends and her fiance are holding out hope the mystery will be solved and their sunday we hadsing which still has not been officially canceled can ultimately go on. on her facebook page sunday 24-year-old annie le wrote less than one week until the big day, but two days later the student vanished. fbi agents used dogs to search the building where she went missing tuesday morning. >> we're just praying that she's going to pop up somewhere and everything's okay. we're not going to look at the worst here. >> reporter: the last sighting of l event was at 10:00 a.m. tuesday after she walked a few blocks from one office lab to another. surveillance video captured her entering the building.
that building was evacuated after an unexpected fire drill at 1:00 p.m. there is no evidence le actually left. her purse and cell phone were found back in her office lab. >> we're all kind of at edge walking around because we don't know what happened. so we would just like to hear what happened and know that we're safe. all right le eeflt fiance a ph.d. at columbia, a didn't return e-mails but is reportedly in new haven helping with the search. two of his lab partners at columbia tell the early show le visited him as recently as friday night and that the two seemed very excited about the wedding. his roommate tells the moork post that the minutes he learned le was missing, he was on a train to new haven, that he was very distraught and worried the timing is terribly cruel the roommate said. maggie? >> skelly wallace, thank you. joining us from washington this morning criminal profiler pat brown. pat, good morning. >> good morning.
>> as we heard, authority dogs thought suspect foul play but in your experience the fact that this happened so close to the wedding, is that a coincidence or is it possible that somebody here got kldcold feet or and did something about it? >> that's good question and evening it's interesting that they're saying they don't suspect foul play at all. i don't know where they would get that from. one of two things would have happened. one is she staged a disappearance like we had with jennifer will banks because she wanted out or she wanted attention. and just vanished. and in that case we should see some behaviors in her past that show she has that kind of personality, but if she doesn't have that attention seeking personality at all, then we would have to suspect foul play because what else would it be there? >> so will police look at her ex-boyfriend no matter what? is that who you go to right off the bat in in kind of investigation? i'm sorry, her fiance.
>> we have to look at everything including it there's an ex-boyfriend even a talker type that liked her and was angered that she was getting married. they'll have to look at her behavior be sure the boyfriend or the fiance does he have an ally by does he have any odd behavior, anybody else in her life, anybody she worked with who had something going on strange with her. and then they'll look at the behaviors of that day. why would she leave her purse there, is that something she normally did does she normally go to the lab with just her i.d. in her hand. what happened with that alarm. could she have pulled it and rushed out with the crowd? these are all things police have to look at and start eliminating one theory after the other. >> 9 fbi searched her apartment yesterday. what sort of thing will they be looking for, what kind of evidence do they immediate to solve this pat? >> i think they're probably looking at the apartment to see if there is any evidence that she has some behaviors that would indicate that this was not an abduction of any sort that
she had something going on in her personal life that wanted to make her disappear, that maybe she left her purse, but yet she had some other money that she could have taken with her, and then disappeared with that. any kind of things on on her computer or anything left around her apartment that was suspicious. they're looking a at those behaviors. if if she hasn't been abducted you don't want to waste a whole lot of money. >> and time which is of the essence. pat brown, thank you so much for your expertise. >> thanks. and of course we'll stay on on top of it this story. but first let's check back in with lonnie quinn. good morning. good morning. there are an awful lot of outdoor memorials is, some of the worst weather will be at underzero in new york city. from atlantic city to new york city heavy town pour, rough seas wind gusts around 45 miles an hour. there's another area of the country that could have some
potential tough weather, as well, and that's around the midwest. we are watching a a cold front push through as the clash of warm air and cold air so nrn plains to central plain, again a chance for wet weather there but then you look around say louisiana into texas, again i see some strong storms popping up but the difference is that rain is needed and believe it or not, we can avoid some flash flooding in our area, we finally have the toughwet we have been concerned about all week. here is the first warning, doppler weather radar. that low offshore that had been benignly sitting there is taking it up and it's playing like a raven, it's going up to a new level. delaware through noon is under a tornado watch. look at and you have nice morning. that's the latest weather.

well can back to "the early show." h1n1 and emergency rooms, since april, more than 9,000 people have gone to the hospital due to the h1n1 virus and that number is expected to grow. travis stork is an e.r. doctor we also host of "the doctors" on cbs an he's back with advice on just when should you go to the e.r. and when should you stay home. we know that 50% of the population is expected possibly to come down with this. is a hospital ready to handle that kind of number? >> well, 50% is pushing it. i don't suspect 50% with the vaccines coming down the pipeline, but it's important because doctors in e.r.s are already overwhelmed so the big issue here is when to go to the e.r. because if you get swine flu and you have mild symptom, fever, muscle aches, don't go to the e.r. because the e.r. can't handle it. if everyone goes to the e.r. then the e.r.s will not be able to handle it.
>> yesterday my daughter fell at the playground and she was all bloody on this side of the face and i thought i have to it take her to the e.r. but i opted against it because i thought if some be who there who has the swine flu, she'll make it worse and i don't want to about him barred doctors with something that isn't important. >> if in doubt, go to the e.r. so what i say is if you're worried, take your child to the e.r. but in most cases like you said if your child looks good whether it's with the flu or after a fall and they're acting appropriate and normal, then probably you you can wait call your doctor. the big thing with the swine flu is almost everyone except for pregnant women, compromised people, young children are doing great with this illness. even most kids are doing great with it. when should you go to the e.r.? well, if you're lethargic confused, not acting normally persistent vomiting or difficulty breathinging or certainly young children if they
become blue around the lip that can be a sign that that this is more dangerous than your typical run of the flu. >> so if you have those symptoms and you go to the e.r. should you take any precautions? >> we have the masks and you have a duty to protect others. if you have the flu, wear a mask. >> thank you so much. we'll be right back. you're watching "the early show" on cbs. >> announcer: cbs health watch oig sponsored by benadryl allergy. it works when you need it most. benadryl benadryl, use onlies as directed.

fans are still buzzing over the announcement that ellen degeneres will be the new judge on "american idol," with you some people are wondering if she's qualified to critique musical talent. let's ask two former contestants, taylor hicks who won season five is in houston and bucky covington who finished eighth that year is in albuquerque. good morning. >> good morning. >> taylor how are you doing and what do you think of this big move some. >> i definitely believe that ellen's jokes are funnier than simon cowell's jokeses. how about that? yeah i think it's going to be great. i think she bring as lot of entertainment value to the show. i think that she has a great -- she's a great personality and she might have a little bit of
more of a musical chop than we think she does. >> because that's the big rub here because some people in the blobs sfeer are saying hang on a minute had is not her power alley, we appreciate her comedic relief but where is the musical background here. >> i think the panel of judges represent the music industry very well. and i think with ellen you you get kind of an all-around entertainer. and i definitely can identify with that. >> bucky, what is your response? when you heard that ellen degeneres was going to be added as a judge, what was your first thought? >> i got to be honest with you, first of all when i heard that paula was not going to be there, that almost didn't seem like that was even going to be true. you almost just knew that the show was going to come on and paula was going to be there. but you know something, i'm probably the bad person to ask here because i am a huge he will when degeneres fan.
and i think it would be great to have somebody call simon out on his corny jokes. >> maybe that's the point because a lot of times paula has been kind of an advocate versus simon srt of, you know, he kind of hates everything. so as long as -- is there a sense that ellen will be sort of the people's advocate and the person suptsportive of the talent some. >> one thing about it is ellen degeneres qualified to be a musical talent judge, when you take somebody like simon cowell, for instance, of course we say simon because he is the biggest judge on the show you know simon whether very admittedly admit that he doesn't like country music at all. so when it comes to -- and dealing with me, of course, i definitely heard that loud and clear. so when it comes to how much back grupd tu need in music because technically the real judges aren't even the three judges sitting there. the real judges are everybody sitting at home calling.
now, if you want to ask what does your background. >> kent: of it really matters to the people that do not have it. >> we need to get simon and he will when in a sinking competition and determine which has the best musical quality. >> i'm going to say my vote would be on ellen. >> thank you for taking the time to be with us. and good wishes to you in your careers. take care. still to come it's common problem. the overstuffed makeup bag. we'll tell you what you need to know when we come back.
